What are The Health Trust finances?

The Health Trust was established in 1996 to manage, in perpetuity, the proceeds from the sale of four nonprofit hospitals and to distribute assets to improve the health and wellness of the community. Since that time, we have provided over $100 million of community benefit through our grantmaking and program services.

Your donation to The Health Trust will help us tackle our community’s toughest challenges: access to food, affordable housing, and chronic disease management so together we can build health equity in Silicon Valley – because everyone’s health matters.
